Two Wacoms and a canvas board

This one is based on a photo of my nephew when he was 15. He's got a sucker in his mouth, though it sort of looks like a thermometer in the photo. I created this with oil pastel crayons and pencil on a canvas board, doing a lot of smearing of the crayons with my fingers. Doesn't allow for a lot of small detail!

This is another take on the same photo, in this case done on the Wacom.

And this is in honor of Cavafy's poem "Ionian," which is one of several in which he suggests that the "old" gods still move among us.

detail and oil pastel dosn't work too well, however what it might lack there it gains in depth of colour, no?
